K.G.Balakrishnan, S.R.Babu Rajendra Babu, J. :

Appeal (civil) 6055 of 1998

In respect of property comprised in 25, Friends Colony West, New Delhi [hereinafter referred to as 'the subject property'], an agreement was entered into to sell for a consideration of Rs.1.75 crores on 1.2.1991. On 4.2.1991, the intended seller and the purchaser filed Form 37-I for issuance of 'No Objection Certificate'. However, on 18.4.1991, a purchase order was passed by the Appropriate Authority and on the same day, the owner of the land was directed to surrender the possession of the subject property.
